Project description

Translation:
The moon camp we set up is a commercial camp. We plan to build our lunar camp in the lunar sea of the moon, because here, there are flat plains. Because titanium is too dispersed in Earth’s rock formations, it is difficult to mine and smelt, and lunar ilmenite is very high in titanium, making it less difficult to mine and smelt. In addition, titanium and its oxide and alloy products are important coatings, new structural materials, anti-corrosion materials, and are widely used in aerospace, military and press fields. We can take advantage of this to commercialize titanium.

我们建立的月球营地是一个商业营地。我们计划在月球的月球海中建造我们的月球营地,因为这里,有平坦的平原。由于钛在地球的岩层中过于分散,因此难以开采和冶炼,而月球钛矿中的钛含量非常高,从而降低了采矿和冶炼的难度。此外,钛及其氧化物和合金制品是重要的涂层、新型结构材料、防腐材料,广泛应用于航空航天、军事和压力机领域。我们可以充分利用这一点将钛商业化。

2.1 Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?

Translation:
Set up a lunar camp in the lunar sea at the lunar north pole. According to research, there are large plains in the lunar sea area, which is conducive to the take-off and landing of lunar spacecraft and reduces the difficulty of base construction. At the same time, its flat terrain is also convenient for astronauts. It has also been shown to be rich in ilmenite resources in the soil of the lunar sea. We can use the collected hydrogen to reduce ilmenite, we can get titanium metal, iron metal and precious water resources. Ilmenite is also rich in oxygen, which can be obtained by calcining the ore at high temperatures.

在月球北极的月球海建立一个月球营地。据研究,月球海域有大片平原,有利于月球飞船的起降,降低了基地建设的难度。同时,其平坦的地貌也方便宇航员。它也被证明在月球海的土壤中富含钛铁矿资源。我们可以利用收集的氢气来减少钛铁矿,我们可以获得钛金属,铁金属和宝贵的水资源。钛铁矿还富含氧气,通过高温煅烧矿石可以获得氧气。

2.2 How do you plan to build your Moon Camp? Describe the techniques, materials and your design choices.

Translation:
The gravitational force of the moon is very small, so construction methods on Earth are not suitable for the moon. For setting up a camp, we can consider 3D printing technology. 3D printed robots can be launched to the moon ahead of schedule, and the construction of lunar camps can be carried out ahead of schedule. It could take advantage of the abundant silica in lunar soil, process it into fiberglass from local materials, and set up camps through 3D printing. And the strength and small mass of fiberglass could reduce the mass of a lunar camp.

月球的引力非常小,因此地球上的建造方法不适合月球。对于建立营地,我们可以考虑3D打印技术。3D打印机器人可以提前发射到月球,月球营地的建设可以提前进行。它可以利用月球土壤中丰富的二氧化硅,从当地材料中将其加工成玻璃纤维,并通过3D打印建立营地。而玻璃纤维的强度和小质量可以减少月球营地的质量。

2.3 The environment on the Moon is very dangerous for the astronauts. Explain how your Moon Camp will protect them. (maximum 150 words)

Translation:
The entire camp is leaning towards low-potential buildings, and there is no danger of buildings tipping over when the moon vibrates. Residential areas are arched, generally not easily damaged, and have good resistance functions. The building material of the entire lunar camp is a relatively tough diamond that will not collapse easily. And when common dangers such as space debris appear, an alarm will be sent to the camp, and stealth protection systems will also be present in the camp, which will prompt astronauts to seek safety. If it is a major threat, astronauts can take a rocket to return to Earth quickly to avoid secondary damage.

Original Text:
整个营地都倾向于低潜力的建筑物,并且当月亮振动时,建筑物不会倾斜的危险。住宅区呈拱形,一般来说不易被破坏,具有良好的抗性功能。整个月球营地的建筑材料是一颗相对坚韧的钻石,不会轻易坍塌。而当出现太空碎片等普通危险时,会向营地内发出警报,而隐身防护系统也会出现在营地内,这将促使宇航员寻求安全。如果是重大威胁,宇航员可以乘坐火箭快速返回地球,避免二次伤害。

2.4 Explain how your Moon Camp will provide the astronauts with:
Water
Food
Power
Air

For water resources, we have relatively complete water production facilities. According to studies, the basalt of the Moon Sea is rich in ilmenite, which is the main raw material for water production. We obtain a large amount of water resources by reducing ilmenite by hydrogen. Lunar soil is rich in gas, in the lunar soil for every 1 ton of helium-3 extracted, 6300 tons of hydrogen can be obtained, through which a large amount of hydrogen can be obtained.

In our moon camp there are botanical gardens for planting .In the early stage, we use soilless cultivation to grow crops, and provide the plants with the necessary elements through nutrient water. At the same time, bacteria are used to improve the lunar soil, and after the lunar soil has the elements necessary for plant growth such as nitrogen and phosphorus, it transitions from hydroponics to large-scale lunar soil cultivation.

For energy, we take two approaches to obtaining it. The first is nuclear power generation: because it contains a large number of helium-3 resources on the moon, nuclear fusion can be carried out through deuterium and helium 3, which does not produce neutrons, so the radioactivity is small, and the reaction process is easy to control, both pollution-free and safe. So we built power plants that are used for nuclear power generation. The second is solar power, which uses solar panels to convert solar energy into electricity to provide energy for lunar camps.

We have a lunar rover that collects gas and canned gas. When we collect helium-3 through the lunar rover, we will get hydrogen, nitrogen and other by-products. At the same time, oxygen is produced by reducing ilmenite by hydrogen. After obtaining oxygen, according to the proportion of gas on the earth’s air, a similar artificial air can be created for human breathing.

2.5 Explain what would be the main purpose of your Moon Camp.

Translation:
The lunar camp we have established is a lunar camp focused on commercialization. In our lunar camp, there is a complete industrial area that can crush ores, smelt and process metals. After a series of processing, the ore can be returned to Earth for sale as commodities such as medical devices. At the same time, the abundant helium-3 resources on the moon will also be sent to Earth for scientific research.

Original Text:

我们建立的月球营地是一个专注于商业化的月球营地,在我们的月球营地中,有完整的工业区,可以粉碎矿石,冶炼和加工金属。经过一系列加工,矿石可以作为医疗器械等商品返回地球销售。同时,月球上丰富的氦-3资源也将被送往地球参与科研。

3.1 Describe a day on the Moon for your Moon Camp astronaut crew.

Translation:
Early in the morning, astronauts wake up from their rooms, where they can brush their teeth and wash their faces. After washing, they ushered in a day’s work. Some astronauts went to the factory to control the normal operation of the machine, some went to the power station and substation to check whether the energy supply was normal, some went to the planting shed to pick ripe vegetables and fruits and sow seeds. The control lunar rover collects by-products such as helium-3. After lunch, astronauts can choose to go back to their room to take a break, or go to the recreation room to watch a movie, exercise, have a drink at the bar, and more. In the evening, the recently produced cargo and collected helium-3 were loaded onto a rocket and sent to Earth for sale. In the evening, after a tiring day of work, the astronauts can lie down on the massage chair, put on headphones and listen to music while relaxing.

Original Text:

清晨,宇航员从他们的房间里醒来,在那里他们可以刷牙和洗脸。洗完后,他们迎来了一天的工作,有的宇航员去工厂控制机器的正常运行,有的去电站、变电站检查能量供应是否正常,有的去种植棚采摘成熟的蔬菜水果和播种,有的控制月球车收集氦-3等副产品。午餐后,宇航员可以选择回到自己的房间休息一下,或者去娱乐室看电影,锻炼身体,在酒吧喝一杯等等。傍晚,最近生产的货物和收集的氦-3被装上火箭,送到地球出售。傍晚,宇航员们结束了一天疲惫的工作,可以躺在按摩椅上,戴上耳机听音乐,同时放松身心。
